Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that his country will focus on Christian family values instead of relying on mass migration to mitigate problems with demographics.
At a meeting of the Bled Strategy Forum in Slovenia on Wednesday, Prime Minister Orbán said that the solution for population management should not be mass migration.
“What we need is not newcomers instead of our own people originally living here, because it’s just a mathematic approach. If we invite others from outside Europe that will change the cultural identity of Europe,” he said.
“There are some countries that accept it but Hungary is not among those countries. We would not like to change the cultural identity of our country so we don’t accept migration as a solution to demographic politics or demographic challenges.”
In 2019 Mr Orbán introduced a series of pro-family policies, including policies particularly targeted towards supporting motherhood.
